Publisher's Summary

What if Manhattan wasn't really purchased from Native Americans? What if the land was really leased?

When Native American anthropologist Linda Lightfoot approaches Mayor Vincent Patch of New York City for permission to dig in Central Park, he denies her request. After consulting with an NYU professor, he learns the tribe is searching for lost documents that may prove that Manhattan's land was leased, not purchased, from the Canarsee tribe.

Shocked at what could happen to his city if the documents were recovered, Patch goes undercover with his attorney brother, Nathan, to find out what the tribe knows. When the brothers show up in disguise at a powwow on Long Island, Patch smokes a peace pipe with them. When asked for his name, he invents one that accidentally identifies him as the tribe's chosen one - the one they have been waiting for to save their tribe and reclaim their homeland.

However, a tribal member named Pale Fox does not take kindly to being usurped as the next chief - he aims to prove that the sudden appearance of the "chosen one" is a fraud.

Things heat up when Patch learns of the tribe's intent to dig in Central Park without permission. The tribe is armed and determined to find the document that could bankrupt New York City.

Patch must now choose a side. Will his decision be the right one? No matter what he decides, what will the tribe do to him when they find out he's a fake? Political hijinks, Italian mob action, and a colorful cast of characters make the race for the missing documents into a fast-paced and sometimes humorous tale of New York City history.

    "And you thought NYC couldn't get any crazier!"

    The Publisher's summary covers the basics, and I'm not into spoilers. But. This book is just too much fun, in an understated, almost sneaky way. The characters are a hoot. The plot is rather farce meets pay attention here. I'm thinking James Garner for the mayor. Anyway, it's short and will have you in stitches. Don't. Miss. It.
    Clay gives a marvelous performance and definitely adds to the fun.
